Starting today, I am once again a wage slave. But this time, only half a wage slave: my regular commitment is part-time. As usual, I’ll be working from home, using our information infrastructure to work with colleagues around the world.
I think this should be an excellent arrangement: a regular income together with the freedom to undertake other tasks – paid or otherwise. Including the magnum opus on which I’ve been doing quite a lot of work of late (but more on that subject in due course). I hope I’m right about part-time working well for me, though only time will tell.
Today I have done some paperwork, grabbed some software from github, and spoken to my new boss. I expect to do a lot of interesting work with that software in the coming weeks and months.
More to come, I’m sure. But I have yet to discuss blogging with my new masters, so for the time being at least I’ll take the side of caution over saying anything more specific.
